Wondering if anyone out there uses Fortinet firewalls.  What I’m looking to find out is:


How long have you been using them?

How many people?  How much Bandwidth?


Accolades?  Horror Stories?


Are you moving protocol based rules to application based rules?   If not, why?

Are you using the IPS, SSL decryption, anti-malware, web filtering, in other words most/all the included features? 


How has it worked for you?  Do you miss the firewall you replaced?


Any other comments?  Love to hear the good and not so good.

Are you interested in hearing about alternatives to Fortinet as well?  Or are you set on Fortinet?
